Do you use real names? Thinking of doing the AU bouns but I'm not sure how to do it without adding real names..
I just added 4-AU's the phone reps disclosure had a new line about me or au downgrading or cancelling avvount within 12 months. Is this new? Never been an issue before...

Targeted. They may not tell you if it's in the system, but if it isn't, theres nothing you can do.

In order to activate Amex Travel insurance, does the entire purchase need to be made on the platinum card? I.e. Flights, hotels etc.?

really?
I have never heard of them clawing back if canceling AFTER one full year after the AF posts.
Has anyone been clawed back doing this?

Either way, I'd prefer downgrading over cancelling if there's a NO AF option or a downgrade option worth paying for.

Your best option would be Green card for $95 AF

Correct but ppl will get upgrade offer in middle of card year and then cancel when the AF hits which results in claw back.

Same applies for downgrading. Happened to me unfortunately. Downgraded after upgrade points posted and points were clawed back. Doesn't seem like there's any recourse to recover those points.

Right that's what I meant - downgrade or cancel. But if you get a good rep they will warn you before you cancel/downgrade, that's what happened to me.
